    Pretty seamless and hassle free -- especially when I am an overseas customer. Also, someone reached out to me via Taxback.com regarding the new work-holiday visa tax change & wanted to use my "case" as a case study in court. I was unhappy to learn that I was the first generation of the WH visa to not get much tax $$ back from Oz... I was happy to help and happy that taxback cared and took action on my behalf.

    Communication. Follow-up and calls from officers of the organisation and prompt responses to mixed calls.
